HERE'S HOW YOU RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE THAT JESUS BOUGHT FOR YOU
THE BIBLE says, "The lord saw how great man's wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The lord was greived that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. ( Gen 6.5-6 )
THE BIBLE says, "He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them find MERCY. ( proverbs 28:13)
Jesus said,"There is rejoicing in heaven over one sinner that repents."(Luke 18:9-14)
Jesus said," Unless you REPENT, you will all perish."(Luke 13:5)
2.Then open the door of your heart to Jesus
Jesus says, " Be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him and he with me. (Revelation 3:19-20)
AS SOON AS GOD SEES EARNEST REPENTANCE, HE'S RIGHT THERE - READY TO CLEANSE AND IMPART ETERNAL LIFE - HIS OWN NATURE - TO YOU! He gives you the faith to receive him and then all you have to say," Yes, come in" or "No. Go Away."
You can't reach down your throat and open a trap door in your heart - so how do you actually open the door? WITH YOUR MOUTH
THE BIBLE says, " If you confess with your mouth, " Jesus is lord", and believe with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10)
I'd like to lead you in a simple prayer to receive eternal life-Just repeat after me
Just before that prayer, let's clarify what this involves.
You transefer your trust to Jesus. Never again will you 'hope you are good enough' in yourself to go to heaven. You admit once and for all that your own righteousness isn't good enough now and never will be good enough. You admit that you need MERCY and FORGIVENESS and the RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD THAT COMES AS A FREE GIFT BY FAITH IN JESUS. Then you receive this "ticket to heaven"- this eternal life, this glorious free gift!
You must be totally honest and sincere with God. " Be earnest and repent," he said.(REVELATIONS 3:19)
You must realize jesus will come into you as lord- the boss. He's not like supernatural servant we can command to do our will. When he moves into your heart - give him his rightful place as lord. Surrender your will to His. Give him a total rule on your life. IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANT
If so, we can go to God in prayer. I'll pray for you, and then I'd like to lead you in a prayer. I'll supply the word, but you must supply the deep sincerity of your heart.
MY PRAYER FOR YOU
Dear precious heavenly father, surround this dear person with your loving presence. Help them to earnestly turn from their sins in repentence. Then flood over them in your cleansing wave of love and give them a brand new heart - impart your own life and nature to them. Let them sense your great love for them and may they come to know more and more and more how precious they are to you. Give them courage to follow Jesus no matter what the world is doing.
NOW PRAY WITH ME
I come to you in Jesus' name.
I'm sorry for my sins.
I want to be forgiven and cleansed and made pure.
Forgive me now.
I believe Jesus as who he is - God's son
I believe he rose from the grave and is alive now.
I hear you knocking at the door of my heart.
And with my mouth, I say,
Come in, Lord Jesus, I open the door!
I receive you now.
You are mine and I am yours.
I make you the Lord of my lifenow.
Thank you for saving me.
Thank you for eternal life!
Praise the lord! I am saved! AMEN!
